Hug a tree!!!

Hey did you know that its world tree day??  No, LOL well neither  did I but it is!!  So go hug a tree!!!
And when you come back inside goo wander over to Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and enter into this weeks challenge which is to use a tree on your creation!
And if you happen to win you can choose four digi stamps from MELJENS!!  and trust me her stamps are awesome!!  I have quite a few in my collection!!

Now i myself was a bit stumped (lol no pun intended) with this challenge as you see I had no tree stamps.  I found a few on the web but wasnt quite what i had in mind.  Then my wonderful friend Trish came to my rescue with her SU tree stamps.  Thanks hun you saved my skin.(or should that be bark!!  LOL)

Anywho here is my card made using Sherwood Edwin.

Stamps: Sherwood Edwin and SU's Lovely as a tree set
Doiley was a gift from the lovely Angie Hunt
Paper : Prima but not the pretty side with the flowers lol. (gotta love DS paper tho hey!!)
Ribbon from my stash.
CS: Bazzill Kraft and chocolate chip SU
Edwin is coloured using copics.
Skin is E11, 00, 000 and R20
Green bits: YG 67, 63 and G21
Brown bits: E 47 and 31 (i use the tip blending technique as i dont have a middle brown colour)

Thats it.  cant wait to see you creations!!!

Leonie, What an absolutely adorable card! Very creative way to use the trees together. Love that you used the doily I sent you :-) Very sweet.

He is just adorable Lone. I watched a history program last night about the legend of the REAL Robin Hood and it was so interesting. Your card depicts him in Sherwood Forest so well, the dp being a perfect match! Great card...
